A flick through the weekend’s pictures

There’s absolutely no doubt about which of the weekend’s results caused the biggest wave, as Tony Bellew stopped David Haye at the 02 Arena on Saturday evening to pull-off one of the biggest upsets in British boxing history.

Harry Kane also caught the eye, scoring two goals to help defeat Everton on Sunday, while Andy Murray was back to winning ways. Below you will find a selection of the weekend’s best pictures from the world of sport, which, as always, tells the story better than words…..

Few gave Tony Bellew a chance vs David Haye on Saturday, but Bomber upset the odds to stop his opponent in the 11th round. Both men went at it, with Haye finishing with an injured leg and Bellew a broken hand.
